Faculty Advising

Are you interested in studying medicine or dentistry after graduation from college?

At Detroit Mercy you'll work with a faculty advisor who is knowledgeable about the preparation needed to apply to professional schools. Together, you'll choose appropriate courses for application to medical or dental school and assist you in choosing the outside volunteer work that will give you the experience of working in a health care setting.

Your faculty advisor reviews your academic progress with you periodically to make sure that your grade point average is consistent with your goals. Your advisor provides you with information about taking the admissions test for professional school, filling out medical or dental school applications and obtaining the letters of recommendation that are essential to your application. Finally, the faculty conduct practice interviews with you to help you over the jitters of your first medical or dental school interview.

If you decide that medical or dental school is not for you after all, the faculty assist you in revising your plans and getting started in a new direction.

Have questions about which path is for you?  Please feel free to contact:
